hey all, ive been looking at a few second hand lenses lately that have fungus but come with with hard tube cases.
i really want them for the cases to protect my good glass. however,i am a little worried that the fungus could cross contaminate to my expensive lenses.
anyone have any ideas if this is so?

I had never heard of lens fungus...but there are sites on the web that are quite informative.

If I understand this phenomena in a simplistic way, fungus in lenses is a combination of dust and damp.
I do not know if it can transfer via lens cases. As Julia says there is a lot on various discussion threads on the WWW.
